The goal of FAST Agile™ is to gain control of your project and achieve hyper-productivity by TRUSTING your developers to do the right thing at the right time and letting them SELF-ORGANIZE.
So how to avoid chaos and anarchy? FAST was inspired by Open Space Technology (OST) as a proven mechanism for self-organization at scale is at the heart of the FAST framework. Open Space Technology provides just enough structure to allow natural leadership to emerge while allowing innovation to flourish.
WARNING - unless you understand Open Space Technology, much of FAST Agile™ may confuse you and leave with a feeling of disbelief. Please spend some time to read up on Open Space Technology and how it's use of self-organization enables hyper-productivity.
At this point you probably have many questions around - measuring progress, sizing, breaking down work, productivity, iteration length, roles, processes, remote workers, working styles and many other practicalities. The next step is to read the FAST Vision, Values, Rules and Principles.
